Spent the weekend in Duluth with my wife, so we made our way to Fitgers a couple of times. Have been there several times in the past.

The Brewhouse is in the Fitgers complex on the shoreline of Lake Superior in Downtown Duluth. The place itself is a little small, which means it can get crowded at lunch or dinner time. It would have been nice if the brewhouse was on the other (lake) side of the hall, perhaps with a patio overlooking the Lake.

The service was fine, with young and attractive twenty-somethings answering questions and providing quick service.

The food is decent, a little better than average bar food done well.

The beer that the Brewhouse produces is excellent. I had a pilsner, an IPA, and a belgian strong ale. All were tremendous. We made sure we picked up a couple of growlers for our return to the Cities.

Prices were fair.

Overall, this place is a must-visit for anyone traveling to or through Duluth.

I'm not sure if I just got lucky on the last visit but both beers were really phenomenal. The Big Boat stout is really rich and unique - a must try for stout lovers. My recollection of past visits is also that the beer was excellent. The food was good, and the service was great. This is a must-stop location for any trip I make to Duluth.

They have 13 tap handles and put out a decent variety of beer - porters, pale ales, sours, wheats, and ales. The food is pretty standard bar fare augmented with some salads and interesting sandwiches. It is a must stop if you are near Duluth.

Incredible venue in a historic hotel on the shores of Lake Superior. Place was packed not only for beer but for food. Did a sampler and was impressed with an oatmeal stout, as well as an imperial. A must stop for a beer lover in the area.

I live next to this place. It has mostly made from scratch food and about a half dozen house made craft beers on tap (all pretty solid). If you are out of town this would be a pretty safe bet for a satisfying evening of beer and food. Expect an hour wait on fri and sat.

Headed to this place while travelling for work. The building is in the downtown area and is a bit of a museum to the original Fitger's, which was nice.

I had the sampler which included their seasonal and Brewer's Reserve. Menu is a bit sandwich heavy, but food was solid.

Great pub to show what local Duluth brewers can do. I'd go back.
